The Minister of Police announced (2 Nov 2010) a major revamp of the Central Firearms Registry. He acknowledged that "it is crystal clear that significant problems still exist" and undertook to fix things as a matter of national priority. An "Intervention Team" is being established to implement major changes, including management changes at the CFR and to resolve all outstanding backlogs within the next 9 months.

Meanwhile, two separate legal actions are currently before the courts regarding the consitutional validity of certain aspects of the Act and the payment of compensation for firearms which are surrendered in terms of the Act. Members will be kept up to date on the latest developments.
All firearms for which application has been made for renewal of the licences, will be legal if proof is produced that the application for renewal of the licences had indeed been made (SAPS 523: Acknowledgement of Receipt of Firearm Documentation) or at least the payment receipt.
